    Inexpensive Car Mount????

    Okay ... so I'm driving my truck around ... wishing I had a dock for my phone in the truck .. you know .. to charge it and allow it to sit pretty ... anyway ... it comes to me ... could I use the infamous desk top charging cradle with the car charger ... since I didn't buy a car charger I can't test my theory ... I'm assuming the voltages are the same ... the connectors should be the same ...

    I always mount my cradle with velcro to the slide out drawer next to my bed that my laptop come out of the headboard on (home made headboard ... really slick ... alas I digress) ... soooooo ... there is already the fuzzy velcro on my cradle ... I could just put the hooked stuff on my consol (home made walnut consul with cup holders and storage) and move the cradle there when I'm working ... acutally ... I probably will just get another cradle and mount it in the truck if this works ... I don't really car about "hands free" since I use a bt headset ... so this would be a really inexpensive truck mount ... assuming it would work

    Any one with a vehical charger and a cradle care to test the theory????

    I dont have them to test but there no reason to test. The car charger and the home chargers outputs will both be the same voltage/amps. They also have the same connector so your theory should work great
